Remote learning

As part of the attempt to minimize the spread and impact of Covid-19, the University of Vermont has switched all classes to remote learning. For my two classes this semester, I am recording short videos as an overview of each lecture, and uploading the powerpoint slides with extensive notes. I am also using the Blackboard discussion boards to have conversation about the lectures during the regularly-scheduled class time. If anyone has questions on this, feel free to email me.

new book review

I have a review of Nilay Saiya’s Weapon of Liberty forthcoming in Nationalities Papers, and it is available through First View here. I think this is a great book, but worry about how to convince people who are skeptical of religion’s importance to read it.
